Discover how we help ELT thrive with data intelligence
14 March 2019

We are proud to deliver the most comprehensive and timely data than any major English language speaking destination in the world.

We know that data and insight can be the key to making great business decisions, so we provide robust data to help the UK ELT industry thrive through our annual student statistics reporttargeted market reports and quarterly statistics initiative known as QUIC.

Patrik Pavalacic, of Bonard (formerly StudentMarketing), said: "We help support the relationship with UK government, so if there is any worry about social or economic impact, it is usually us cooperating with English UK on these reports."

Our QUIC initiative represents a true picture of the UK ELT sector - one that is valuable to all English UK member centres.

Patrick Murphy, of BLS English, said: "I have a responsibility to my staff by looking after jobs and keeping them going. How do I do that? By using the QUIC stats, I can benchmark and take necessary measures to keep things flowing."
